A while back I was invited for a Grand Plastic Surgery Korea blogger event to hear and learn more about Grand Plastic Surgery Korea and the services/treatments they have to offer. They tout themselves to be Korea’s biggest plastic surgery center with 4300m2 across their 21 stories building. Their Sinsa Main Center is fully equipped with state of the art medical facility and they offer one stop service from consultation, treatment, surgery, recovery and post care.
Naturally they provide a comprehensive list of surgery treatments including Eyes, Nose, Fat Grafting (voluminous baby face is apparently popular in Korea now, which for the life of me, I can’t understand why, especially since people with baby face are actively trying to get rid of the excess fats), Anti-aging (Face lift), Breast and Body Contouring and Jaws/Facial Contouring.
We also heard from Jacqueline aka GollyLocks, who gone through double eyelids and jaw reduction/facial contouring done at Plastic Surgery Korea. She said it was a painless experience, which obviously came as a shock to the other bloggers in attendance. She’s very satisfied with the results and recommends their services.
Along with 2 other bloggers, I had the chance to meet one of the Grand Plastic Surgery doctor for a quick consultation at the event. I enquired about double eyelid surgery (would/might want to go for one in the future) and he was quite confident that I can get my even double eyelids for my eyes, as I currently have uneven double/single eyelids. I enquired about the failure percentage at Grand Plastic, to which he said is less than 5% as each doctor specialises in a certain area so they are very skilled and they also offer free rectification surgery.
The staff followed up with an email on the recommended surgery after the consultation, their rates and recommended length of stay after the session:
1. Natural Adhesion Method
1,500,000 ~ 1,700,000 Korean won (>$1500SGD)
2. Ptosis Correction
700,000 ~ 900,000 Korean won (>$800SGD)
The minimum recommended stay is 3~ 4 days in Korea to have post surgery treatment and outside stitches removed. If you could stay up to 6 ~ 7 days it may be even better to check on your recovery.
S$2300 for an eyelid surgery is definitely cheaper than in Singapore, which costs about S$3000 or more and by doctors who are likely not as skilled then those in Korea who likely perform on hundreds a week, if not days. But if you include airfare and hotel stay in Korea then it’s definitely more expensive, haha.
I can’t attest nor recommend their services since I’ve not tried them before, nonetheless I do think they’re worth considering if you’re preparing to head to Korea to have an eye/nose/jaw/boob/facelift job done! Check out their english website here and email them here if you’re keen to enquire about the fees, consultation and surgery details, etc.
What I would recommend is that you look for a Korean friend to help you make the booking in Korean if possible, as I’ve heard from friend/friend of friends who’ve been to Korea for beauty services/treatments/surgery that it’s cheaper when a Korean makes the booking in Korean. Plus, Koreans themselves would most likely know which clinic is credible and recommend the really good clinics, right?
Plus, my review of Grand Plastic’s Prestige Cell (Anti Wrinkle) Mask is at the end of the post.
Snapping selfies before the event which was held at a restaurant/Joie By Dozo at Orchard Central, which is one of my favourite malls in town, the other being 313 Somerset, because they have SO MANY YUMMY RESTAURANTS. I digress.Jacqueline shares her own experience with Grand Plastic Korea, yes she travelled to Korea for the surgeries. You can read about her experience on her blog here!
Waiting for my consultation, which was held on stage and by my turn I don’t think the other bloggers were keen/following with the consultation questions, lol.
Wefie with Melissa and Jacqueline!<3 Lighting was really good.
So I snapped a few more, keke. Headed for a surprise birthday celebration for a colleague at Studio M Hotel after the event, snapped more selfies while I was on the way! 😀
I’m not a huge mask person because I’m generally a really
lazy hassle free person that don’t seem to find that 15-20 min time period for a seat in facial mask, ha. And I also tend to be put off by really fancy masks like snail essence #IJustCant. So it’s kind of thankfully that I didn’t read the ingredients into the mask before I used it because this Prestige Cell (Anti Wrinkle) Mask contains 5% cord blood derived stem cells. with 30 different skin regeneration factors to reduce wrinkles and give you youthful/supple looking skin. I probably shouldn’t be grossed out because the ingredient is an extract/derivative from laboratory and not actual blood per se. And I will still use the 2 other masks I have (3 in the pack I was given) because it does feel really good. The mask sheet is premium fibre sheet that promises to hold more of the cord blood derived stem cells and hold on to the face better, and when I first touched it I could tell it’s better quality then the usual/normal ones and they did cover my face snugly until it began to dry out with time before it came off. The mask is free from fragrance, artificial ingredients, ethanol, paraben, mineral oil, so I reckon this is good for sensitive skin types too! Use this face mask after washing and toner. Remove after 15-20minutes and dab remaining essence into the skin for absorption. I recommend using this mask in the evening so you can wake up to refreshed skin. Only found 1 online site selling these Prestige Cell Masks (no guarantee if the site is credible or not though) and it’s selling at 65HKD/$12SGD which is surprisingly cheap cause I was expecting the mask to be like SKII pricing, which is $122 for 6 or $20/mask. I haven’t actually tried SK-II mask before, but if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, perhaps you can try this! 🙂
Thank you Grand Plastic Surgery Korea and Incite Comms for the blogger event invite and masks for review!
